Data

ESOC is committed to archiving event, public opinion, and spatial data on all the countries where we work. These pages provide links to a wide range of original data. If you need processed data, our colleagues at xSub have developed a "database of databases" on armed conflict and contention from dozens of different sources. xSub organizes event data into common units of analysis by space (country, province, district, grid cell, electoral constituency) and time (year, month, week, day) to enable cross-national testing of sub-national hypotheses.
